Police appeal after alleged racial abuse

Monday October 31 2016

The man has now been identified. The photo has been removed.

POLICE have released an image of a man they would like to speak to after alleged racial abuse at a Barnsley match.

The incident relates to the game between Barnsley and Rotherham United at Oakwell on August 27.

During the match, it is reported that some fans racially abused players on the pitch.

This caused distress to others at the match and the matter was referred to police for investigation in September.

Despite extensive enquiries, the individuals involved have not been identified.

Police believe the man pictured could hold information useful to their investigation and ask that anyone who recognises him gets in touch.

Anyone with further information should call 101 quoting incident number 247 of 11 October 2016.

Now stop complaining about the police not investigating burglaries etc. They're tacking real crimes like this.

I don't suppose every available officer has been on a man hunt for this person since August stopping them from investigating other crimes. They just need someone to identify the fool caught on camera, it would take all of 5 minutes.
Crime in Barnsley isn't like the X Factor 'Jack', you don't vote for what crime you want to be tackled and vote off the others.
Incitement to racial hatred has been a criminal offence since 1976.
It needs stopping and has no place in Barnsley and on the football terraces.
